Eddie Murray's Baseball Card

April 8, 2015

Thirty years ago, the Orioles opened their 1985 campaign with a 4-2 win over the Texas Rangers at Memorial Stadium. The game, played in a swift two hours and 35 minutes, featured an eighth-inning two-run homer by Steady Eddie Murray after the Rangers had tied it in the top of the frame with an RBI single off Don Aase by Pete O'Brien. Murray's homer followed a lead-off walk by Cal Ripken Jr., who gave his OBP numbers a season-opening boost with three walks in four plate appearances.
